liquidshell in kdereview

Hi all,

I'd like to announce an application I've implemented over the last few weeks - liquidshell

liquidshell is a replacement for plasmashell

It does not use QtQuick but instead relies on QtWidgets,
therefore no hardware graphics acceleration is needed.

Main Features:
- Wallpaper per virtual desktop
- No animations, no CPU hogging, low Memory footprint
- Instant startup
- No use of activities (I never used nor needed them)
- QtWidgets based, therefore follows widget style from systemsettings
- Icons are used from your globally defined icon theme from systemsettings
- Colors are used from

Simple Menu (Plasma widget) now in kdereview

Hi,

I'd like to submit the "Simple Menu" widget for Plasma to kdereview.

Sysadmin kindly moved the repo in position for me:

krecipes

Hi,

I've been using krecipes quite a bit, even tried to contribute a converter feature, but it appears to be abandonware. Anyone on here familiar with the code, and potentially interested in porting it to KF5? Or maybe there's another comparable application out there which is maintained actively (and can hopefully import data from krecipes)?

Thanks,

R.

Join the Akademy 2018 talks committee!

Hi

We are looking for people to join the Akademy 2018 Talks Committee.

To be suitable all you need is to have attended Akademy previously, have a
good idea of what the community is up to and have some spare time over the
next few months.

The committee comes up with some suggested themes in the Call for Papers and
decides on the selection of talks from the submissions. So they are a very
important part of making the conference a success.

If you would like to be involved in this please let me know.

Cheers,

KIO and cookies

Hello to everyone,
I'm working on making QWebEngine work correctly in Konqueror when downloading
files (although I didn't have much time to spend on this in the last months).

The problem is that instead of downloading the correct files, in some cases
Konqueror download html files. This only happens from sites requiring
authentication (I first noticed when trying to download a file from my bank's
web page); besides, it only happens if I try to use KIO for the download, for
example calling KIO::copy from a slot connected with
QWebEngineProfile::downloadRequested.

No good way to play video files located on password-protected Samba shares in KDE Plasma

It seems that our users don't have a good way to play videos on
password-protected Samba shares: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328</a>

For programs that use it, KIO transparently provides network protocol
access, abstracting away the details and security aspects. DragonPlayer
is the only one KIO-using video player I'm aware of, and its samba
access seems broken (<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386192</a>), and
the program itself seems largely unmaintained. Other popular video
players like VLC, MPV, and MPlayer do not use KIO.

new feature: draw tool

Hi all,

*Not sure if this is the right mail list to request new features*

It would be nice to see a feature inside spectacle to draw basic
rectangles/circles over an image.

This feature may not fulfill the main reason to use spectacle, but it would
save a lot of time avoiding to open an image editor + editing the picture
there.

Frameworks release schedule?

Hello folks, with my Kubuntu release manager hat on, I was filling in
the calendar for the next 6 months. For Frameworks, this page:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Schedules/Frameworks" title="https://community.kde.org/Schedules/Frameworks">https://community.kde.org/Schedules/Frameworks</a> is now on a provisional
schedule - 5.40 (expected) Sat November 4th, 2017 for tagging,

Is the schedule for the next 6 months still undecided, or has the wiki
page just not been filled in yet?

gnome font rendering is ok for bitmap font, the same as kde for vector font.

Participation of KDE in GCI 2018

Hello everyone,

I am writing this to urge KDE to participate in GCI 2018. On the idea page,
we have around 20+ tasks and few members have shown interest in adding
tasks for their projects in GCI later(if we take part).

My opinion is that we should participate. Thoughts?

I can apply as org admin if no one else is available for the task. I will
need to ask few questions in regards to that. Can I email someone with
my question related to the process? If yes, please state so that I can ask.
Time is the issue but I can put in the required time to get it done.

Vijay Krishnavanshi

Latte Dock as kde project and seeking some wisdomness

Hello everyone,

Latte is in review phase in order to become kde project but this mail is
not for this.
I am searching for some wisdom concering QML crashes. Some users reported
that an update in Arch crashes Latte Dock 0.7.1 even though this wasnt
happening in the past.

Korganizer doesn't show CalDAV calendar. No errors, just no calendar.

Hello,

I exported to vcs format from Korganizer 4.4.11 (that does not support
CalDAV) and placed the resulting file in a Radicale server. Then, set
up multiple versions of Korganizer (5.2.3 - 2 of them, 4.14.1) to access
the "DAV groupware resource". Entered the proper user, password, URL
(manual configuration) and when I was done all instances fetched the
collections and they now report "Ready".

Add your tasks to the Idea page for GCI

Hi everyone,

I have added few tasks on the GCI page and would like to ask other
interested mentors to add their ideas to the idea page.

I have also reused some of the ideas from the last year GCI. We need
minimum 25 tasks for participation before the date 21st October so that
time for doing the required things for applying as an organization is
reserved. More ideas can be added later.

Any sort of task can be added to the idea page if they are doable by
students of age group 13-17.

Python bindings using cppyy (was: An update on Python bindings)

As promised, here is an interim update on the investigation into the
use of cppyy-based bindings for KF5 (and more...) instead of SIP-based
bindings.

The first thing is that the underlying technology of cppyy,
cling/ROOT, has been under development at CERN for quite a while. It
directly reads regular C++ files (there is no intermediate format like
SIP).

The bindings it generates from Python to C++ seem far more complete
and automatic than SIP.

Building Qt with kdesrc-build

Hi all,

I'm trying to build Qt using kdesrc-build on Debian Stretch.  I've
successfully built a number of KDE modules but now I've come up
against plasma-workspace's dependency on Qt >= 5.9.0 which Stretch
doesn't provide.

I've followed the instructions here

<a href="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html" title="https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-features.html">https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/basic-featur...</a>

but unfortunately a number of Qt packages fail to build as
kdesrc-build expects a CMakeLists.txt file:

rah@myrtle:~/proj/plasma-mobile/kdesrc$ grep "Error" $( ls -1rt src/log/latest/*/cmake.log | tail -n 3 )

Passing arguments to application when using KRun::runApplication

Hi!

I have a KService that I've found using
KMimeTypeTrader::self()->preferredService and let's say I know it's

file in particular.

Re: Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hi,

Kopete has tasks that can be done by GCI candidates.

Yes, people are busy. Other new members of KDE should take the initiatives
for their projects and participate to mentor GCI students. It's a great way
to get potential enthusiastic contributors for your projects.

It takes effort to be mentor but we always have experienced members to help
us when lost on something :)

If you can mentor and have time, add your proposal here which you are
willing to mentor.

Is there interest in participating in Google Code-in this year?

Hello folks, when I've written about GCi before this, I got few to no
replies. My feeling is that previous enthusiastic mentors are without
the energy and time to participate this year.

Org applications are open, but unless I hear a swell of enthusiasm
here, I'm inclined to not apply.

Thoughts?

iconv.dll not found

Hi All,
I am using Microsoft Windows 10, kde-windows installer 1.1.0.
When I run bovo, its says “iconv.dll not found”
I then delete bovo and install bovo via the above mentioned installer.
When I then run bovo, it still says “iconv.dll not found.
What am I doing wrong?
How do I get inconv.dll installed again?
Yours Sincerely

Dolphin: Updating the item model after KIO::CopyJob

I'm working on a change to Dolphin that involves using a KIO::CopyJob to
copy files. It works fine so far, but when I query the KFileItemModel to
get the index of the new file(s) so I can update the selection, I get
back an index of -1. It looks like the item model isn't automatically
updatyed after the copy job. I think I have to do something special to
get the KFileItemModel to see the new files, but what?

Easy, encrypted transfer of larger files over third party server

time to review the goal proposals

Hey folks :)

A little over a month ago I asked KDE contributors to submit proposals
for goals that KDE should focus on over the next 3 to 4 years
(<a href="http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/" title="http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/">http://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2017/08/20/evolving-kde-lets-set-some-goals/</a>).
I am very happy with the proposals that were submitted from different
parts of the community. A lot of work and thought went into them and
they all would make great focus areas for KDE over the coming years.

From today until the end of October we will go into the next phase and
refine these proposals. You can help make them ready for the vote in
November.

FYI: Beware of packaging bug wrt qtwebengine

Heya,

I've just applied some fixes to the qtwebengine recipe which move some files
to the "correct" location after qtwebengine has been installed. It looks like
this worked fine without my patch when you ran the executable on the same
machine (I assume some hardcoded paths internally in QtWE), but it does *not*
when you run the executable on a different machine.

If the files are not in their resp. location, anything using QtWebEngine to
show a page will just crash (somewhere in WebEngineContext::current() in
Qt5WebEngineCore).

Sending the list of files from Ark to another application via Drag & Drop

DBus interface org.kde.ark.DndExtract has a method called
extractSelectedFilesTo, but I could not find a way to get the list of
extracted files. Is there one?
Use case: Drag some file from the archive opened in Ark, drop it to another
application (e.g. Kate), effectively opening the file. The application
needs to know the list of files to open after their extraction.
I know one can use Open with... in Ark itself, but D&D may be more natural
for some users, especially considering that (AFAIK) Windows can do this
with WinRar.

Flatpak Qt/KDE runtime

Hi,
Recently flathub started building our runtime into their systems. I
recommend using the runtimes there. I updated the wiki to reflect the
change:

You will possibly have to remove and add again the runtime, but other
than that everything should work as usual.

stealing focus ... back, with a shortcut key?

Hi,

All of ye people who use a focus-follows-mouse mode probably know the situation where for instance you click on a link in an email, the webbrowser comes to the foreground and takes focus. With KWin, you can mouve the mouse cursor all you want, as long as it remains in the original (email) window you won't get your focus back.

Sometimes that's exactly what your want, preferably without having to touch the mouse. Older WMs (often?) had a "give focus to window under mouse" command which could be assigned a shortcut.

Translations

Hi Hannah,

Jasem was telling me today about a new translations feature that was implemented. He said there might be problems on Macs and Windows but that you are working on it. I tried his instructions and got partially there. I went to the directory I was building kstars. I used make fetch-translations and it acquired the po files. Then I did make and it made the mo files. Then I did make install and it put them into a subfolder called /share/locale. But it doesn’t show up in the program.

Kmail without kdewallet?

I'm running Kmail 5.2.3 and kdewallet under Debian 9. Can I safely uninstall
kdewallet? (Kmail is the only program I run that uses it).

mail password (the same as my previous installation of Kmail 4 did).
However, IF I've previously logged in to my server, kdewallet opens a box for
its password on the server instead, which is a nuisance (and much bafflement
before I accidentally found this out).

An update on Python bindings (Re: A new attempt on PyKDE5 binding generation)

THE TOOLING
===========

- A pretty powerful KDE-independent automatic binding generation capability.

- Supplemented by a powerful/fine-grained manual override "rule" capability.

- Comprehensive (rule-based) support for the main Qt templates (QList,
QVector, QHash, QSet and QFlags), some selected std:: and boost::
templates support, multi-dimensional arrays and lots more.

- CMake-based portability (the frontend is solid enough to "read" KDE,
only the final C++ compilation remains to be moved to either CMake or
a Python-

Setting encoding in Kate

Is there a way to mark a file as using a specific encoding? Like some
string inside a C comment that Kate recognizes?
